  1. I was thinking of this when I posted… We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Hospital emergency departments are forbidden by law to turn away someone in need of emergency care. Because something is required by law doesn't mean it's a right. The right to life is the right to act freely for one's self-preservation. It is not a right to be immune from death by natural causes, even an untimely death. My amended ans
  2. If by health care you mean health insurance... No. However, if by health care you mean emergency medical care... Yes.
  3. My employer pays for it. So... yes, the 'gubmit' foots the bill.
  4. I've never had a reaction to the flu shot. Even though statistics indicate that the regular flu is much more of a threat than the swine flu, I suppose I'd consider taking the H1N1 vaccine if my department made it available.
  5. ^ Trying to figure that one out... Never.
  6. No, they don't take it. I don't want to get sick out on a run then bring it home to them. And, it's free.
  7. "Seldom does sex in the back of the Sizzler lead to anything good." - Colin Cowherd
  8. I'm extremely proud of my service in the Navy. Often people believe that military service is the only way to serve the country. It isn't. We need God-fearing, honorable men to stand and be responsible citizens in both the home and the community.
  9. You did. Not being able to return to work is clearly punishment. Are you reading what you write?
  10. Nice... another government mandate on businesses. Not a conservative ideal at all. The Framers were all about freedom. Had they "actually perceived everyone, who could, would vote", we would be able to find it written in the Constitution. They understood wholly that freedom includes not voting.
  11. Take the class again then. The Framers would have never suggested punishment for those exercising their right not to vote.
  12. To you pseudo-conservatives... The 1st Amendment to the Constitution protects even those that chose not to vote.
  13. Wrong. I do have a good idea of what they did, as I was in the Navy. Clearly, you have absolutely NO concept of how the Navy operates. A statement by U.S. Northern Command confirmed the American military's tracking of the Russian submarines. "We have been monitoring them during transit and recognize the right of all nations to exercise freedom of navigation in international waters according to international law," said the statement. LINK I bet right... obviously. BTW, "heightened alert" gets squat.
  14. You have NO idea what the Navy did to 'relocate' the subs, as it should be. For some reason, you assume the Navy stood idle. I'm betting sonobouys were dropped all over them. BTW... Heightened alert would do nothing to move the subs.
  15. I agree. Plank 4 is a very disgusting view of the men and women that dedicated their lives to serving the country. Any thought of conscripting military retirees is patently un-American. I would never vote for someone that endorses plank 4. Or 2, 3, 6, 7, 9, 14, 20, 21, 22, 24. No dictator for me.
  16. AB... wasn't he officially the ugliest man on TV?
  17. Not at all. I debate him regularly. Quite successfully too, I might add. Are you jealous?
  18. You're quite the military mind there parent. I've never heard that the military was responsible for 911. You should be ashamed of yourself.
